In anticipation of the Netflix revival of “Gilmore Girls” on November 25, Netflix decided to turn more than 200 diners nationwide into mini pop-up Luke’s Diners, complete with the requisite decor.
Here’s how it looked in Studio City (Los Angeles) on Wednesday morning.
And here’s how it looked in nearby Beverly Hills at the Comoncy Cafe, where not only was the space transformed into the “Gilmore Girls” hangout, but Luke himself showed up.

Obviously “Gilmore Girls” fans were pretty pleased to see “Luke” (actor Scott Patterson) in the flesh!

Patterson was pretty pumped about meeting so many GG fans, too.

“Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life” consists of four 90-minute episodes. Each episode of the miniseries will be set in Stars Hollow and each episode will cover a different season, as in winter, spring, summer and fall. The show about a single mom and her daughter originally aired in 2000 and ran for seven seasons.
“‘I was always hopeful about the show,” Patterson told Variety, about the series’ devoted fanbase. “I’m glad we got to give the fans what they truly deserve.” He says fans are going to like the new episodes, too. “It’s going to be something they really recognize, but there is going to be a lot of unexpected surprises for them. Fans are going to be very surprised, and I think they’re going to love it.”
